The Department of Justice is leading a crusade against the throngs of White House leakers trying to derail President Trump’s agenda and priorities. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced last week a crackdown on those leaks, suggesting leakers may face prison time.
Fox News Publishes Leaked Classified Info
President Trump has often complained about the leakers handing classified information to the press to write negative reports about him and his administration and dismissed many of the leaks as false since reporters wouldn’t name their sources.
Remember, don’t believe “sources said” by the VERY dishonest media. If they don’t name the sources, the sources don’t exist,
Trump tweeted on Sep. 30, 2016.
Ironically, his favorite news channel, Fox News, just leaked classified information and refused to name the sources. Should Sessions’ DOJ prosecute the surprising offender?
On Tuesday, Fox & Friends co-host, Steve Doocy discussed the leak with the UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. The conversation revolved mainly around North Korea. At one point, Doocy spilled the beans on an anonymous report about the North Koreans loading cruise missiles on a patrol boat. The move was spotted by U.S. military satellites and was not supposed to reach the public.
Doocy cited a Fox News report that was based on leaked classified information provided by unnamed intelligence officials familiar with the matter. When the Fox News anchor asked Haley if she could offer more details on the findings, her reply was blunt: “I can’t.”
An ‘Incredibly Dangerous’ Leak
When Doocy asked why she said she couldn’t discuss classified information that landed in a newspaper. Haley added that if such sensitive information is now in a newspaper for everyone to read, it is a shame.
When Fox and Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt intervened wondering if the info was another leak, the U.N. ambassador underlined that it is “incredibly dangerous” for top secret material to get out into the media like that.
You are not only just getting a scoop on something, you are playing with people’s lives,
The U.N. ambassador told Fox News.
I mean honestly, could you imagine if a lunatic got ahold of the nuclear codes from a leak? Oh wait…that’s already happened.
